Default Problem with window at top of display

I have WinPatrol, which is very good about letting me know when software wants to make a change to my computer. I'm supposed to be given the option of accepting or rejecting the change, but I can't, because the window is all the way to the right with part of it missing so that I cannot see the REJECT button, only the ACCEPT button. This window will not let me move it around or to enlarge the borders to access the REJECT button. This means I can only accept the changes that I don't want, which makes it pretty much useless. Is there something I can do to change the window so that I can see the whole thing? I have windows 7 on my laptop.

WinPatrol I used with XP and earlier.. Nice tool.

Try re-installing it.

I just reinstalled it and the problem persists. I also wrote to their customer support to see what they say.

Sometimes, someone will put up a picture that is so large that it goes past your window...When that happens, there should be a scrollbar at the bottom of the browser...

Here's an example...

If you didn't see that scrollbar before, then there's your answer...

If you did and this is about something else, then I guess you'd have to wait for WinPatrol...

(Hint - Don't put extra-large pics in your posts!!!!!)...
